Who says hookers get no respect? Besides winning the coveted Mr. International Escort of the Year award at the Hookies last month, Boomer Banks was recently the subject of a major piece on The Huffington Post. The story, written by Dominique Mosbergen, delves into the world of gay male escorts. Banks is quoted as saying, "People think you're just this fucking hooker, someone who's money-hungry, dirty and gross. But that's not my reality." The porn superstar goes on to share how he first got into hustling (via Rentboy) and gay porn (as a Raging Stallion exclusive) and his current plans to brand himself into a career as a fashion designer. That's what we like, a smart man with a plan! Porn stars Ryan Rose, Christopher Daniels (who wrote a book on the subject) and Leo Forte were also interviewed for the in-depth piece, which stresses that clients of these guys are paying for their time and some "intimacy," not for any specific sex act. It also speculates that 60 to 70 percent of porn models also work as escorts. To read the full story, click here.
On the business side, Banks has just wrapped filming of The Pack for Naked Sword. This is the first original production for the online studio to be filmed outside California. Helmed by Mr. Pam, the upcoming series was shot on location at NYC gay haunts such as Eastern Bloc, Blue Store Chelsea and even the Black Party, where cameras are strictly forbidden. According to the press release, Boomer plays a "sadistic sex-crazed performance artist," along with Seven Dixon, Marcus Isaacs, Leo Forte and Element Eclipse. (Sounds like typecasting to us!) When she wasn't busy shooting the five sex scenes and one solo, industry vet Mr. Pam also lectured at Columbia University about her experience in the big biz. Look for The Pack next month.
